Abstract : The system design was modified to reduce the dry weight to 25 pounds and to improve the reliability of the hermetic seal. The generator system was started and operated outdoors when the wind was 17 mph gusting to 25 mph. Noise level tests were conducted on the system in an anechoic chamber. The maximum broad band sound pressure level is 52 db at a distance of 50 feet. (Author)
